Black Hawk Exploration, Inc., www.blackhawkexploration.com – a diversified metal and energy (mostly lithium) explorer currently focused on developing gold and silver at its Dun Glen Gold Project in Pershing County, Nevada, excitedly announced that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) granted approval for the Company’s Phase 2 exploratory drilling program at Dun Glen today.

CEO of BHWX, Kevin M. Murphy, took a moment to comment on the rapidly accruing forward momentum at Dun Glen, culminating in this approval by the BLM, and noted the recent expansion of the potential gold property base, and the engagement of Stonehouse Drilling and Construction to start drilling by the 26th of this month.

Stonehouse will be deploying logistical support to sites approved in the BLM application, and should have drilling equipment, personnel and support vehicles in place well before the next 12 days have expired, as Stonehouse boasts one of the best track records in the industry.

Murphy explained that, while it would not happen overnight, each day the Company was moving steadily closer to the goal of “turning Dun Glen into a fully productive gold mine”.

Consulting Geologist Hunsaker Inc. has detailed some 30 more salient claims strategically located adjacent to the Company’s current acreage, staking some 600 acres on behalf of BHWX wholly-owned subsidiary, Golden Black Hawk.

So things are really shaping up for BHWX in Nevada, and management projects that this most recent addition will prove to be of high value, representing a solid justification of the Company’s commitment to aggressively acquire value-added property.

The Dun Glen consists of 94 contiguous, unpatented lode mining claims over 1,700 acres in the historically proven (250k oz Au to date from lode and placer sources) Sierra Mining District. The claim itself is situated on a 10k-foot-long structural corridor of high-grade, gold-bearing ore which is literally surrounded by historic placer sites.

The Company is looking forward to continuing to develop existing projects and enhance productivity via the application of new methods and technology, while acquiring diverse, proven assets that will generate strong shareholder value downstream.
